Need to get your haircut before an event? Here are 10 of the best hair salons in Iowa.
1. J. Michaels Salon
J. Michaels Salon was opened in 2013 by owners Michelle and Jay Ryan. It opened intending to bring a touch of modern style to the urban Des Moines area, and since then has grown exponentially. J. Michaels Salon is the first exclusive L’Oréal Professional Salon in the area and exclusively uses professional products such as Kerastase, Shu Uemura, Iribe, and R+Co.
The staff of J. Michaels Salon boasts a great degree of experience and specializes in many services. Whether you need a simple haircut, styling, or coloring, or you need something more sophisticated, like Kerastase treatments, you’re sure to leave feeling simply gorgeous.

Salon Spa W is a genuinely unique joint located in the urban heart of Des Moines’ East Village. Their artists have an incredible amount of combined experience, and the team boasts many national and international awards and recognition in various industry publications.
Their services are comprehensive (to the point I can’t fully list them all here), but you can expect professional service, no matter the stylist. Whether you need any work done on your hair or need a full-service spa day, the staff at Salon Spa W will bring out your inner glow like never before.

No matter your needs, you can rest assured that Blaze’s incredibly experienced and talented staff will serve you perfectly.
The team at Blaze has grown to the point that they’ve established professionals dedicated to various services. As such, every client enters the salon knowing that whether they need waxing or keratin smoothing, or something as simple as a haircut and styling, they’re in the best hands possible.

4. Indulge Sun Spa and Hair Studio
Cedar Rapids’ Indulge Sun Spa and Hair Studio is a growing name in the area. While the team’s success is no surprise given their incredible experience, it’s always a pleasant surprise to see the extraordinary lengths these professionals will go to in order to ensure a happy client.
The services offered at Indulge are pretty broad, ranging from your average haircut, styling, and coloring (men and their beards included) to smoothing treatments, airbrush/UV tanning, and full body waxing. A day in Indulge ensures your body is, well, indulged! So don’t skip out on the incredible experience on offer here.

5. Bella Salon
Davenport’s Bella Salon will serve you well no matter your needs. Why, you may ask? Because they have two locations dedicated to helping just men or women. Need a barbershop? Head to Bella Barber.
But, if you need waxing, a lash/brow bar, makeup, a complete skin boutique, or just a simple haircut and styling, Bella Salon will serve you quite well. And the bearded men out there will be happy to know that Bella Barber offers complete hair and beard services, including detailing, grey blending and guylights, and even a full hot shave.

6. PURE Hair + Beauty Lounge
Founded in 2012, Davenport’s PURE Hair + Beauty Lounge has developed quickly over the past decade. This incredible transformation from “everyday salon” to local industry leader is enforced through the numerous local awards, glowing reviews, and the sheer passion each stylist exudes upon entering PURE.
The awe-inspiring thing, though, is PURE’s services list. Where most salons choose to focus on one or two genuinely excellent services, PURE has found a true expert for each stylistic service. Ranging from haircuts and color to makeup, waxing, lashes, bronzing, and even full facials, PURE’s services are too broad to list in such a small space.
If you’d like to look into booking an appointment, visit PURE’s new client page.
7. Bespoke Salon
Bespoke Salon is centered in the beautiful Sioux City and is quite aptly named. I say this because every step they take to serve a client leads to creating a bespoke service; Bespoke’s stylists create something that’s never been seen before and never will be again.
As such, their services are highly focused but result in the absolute best results you could request. You’ll need to examine each stylist to see their full list of services, but you can expect to find waxing experts as well as brow tinting and complete color/styling services for hair.
While you’ll need to book with a particular stylist, you can visit Bespoke’s contact page for more information.
8. Fresh Hair Salon & Day Spa
Founded in 2006 by owner and stylist Alex Nuno, Fresh Hair Salon & Day Spa is located in the heart of Sioux City and brings a few unique services to the table. Among their defining factors are Fresh Hair’s two Deva Cut specialists, meaning those with highly curly, coiled, or wavy hair that traditionally causes issues for “standard” hairstylists will find their stylist here.
Unsurprisingly, this means that Fresh Hair specializes in, well, hair! However, they also offer a wide range of services, from a full array of spa and nail services to waxing and brow/lash work. No matter the needs of your hair, you can rest assured that the stylists at Fresh Hair will ensure that your locks are, indeed, fresh and gorgeous.

9. Pure Salon and Spa
Pure Salon and Spa is located in Ankeny and has been serving locals for years now. Recognized by Salon Today in 2018 as one of the top 200 new salons in the United States, Pure has grown quickly due to its staff’s incredible dedication to their craft and desire to see clients leave glowing and happy.
Among the services on offer are the average haircut and styling for both men and women and Aveda coloring and extensions. Additionally, those seeking makeup, waxing, or bridal services won’t be disappointed – Pure Salon has a specialist for every occasion.

10. Anani Salon and Spa
Anani Salon and Spa is perhaps Ankeni’s premiere “high class” salon and spa. While their prices don’t reflect this reality, it allows Anani to serve all clients equally and ensure they each leave happy and feeling ready to take on the world.
Whether you need a simple haircut and styling, or something more luxurious like nail care, facial treatments, skincare, or microblading, Anani has a specialist for you. Each time you visit, you’ll enter feeling relaxed and leave knowing that you received perhaps the best salon experience you’ve ever had.
